Logo of Wikidata

Welcome to Wikidata, CalendulaAsteraceae!

Wikidata is a free knowledge base that you can edit! It can be read and edited by humans and machines alike and you can go to any item page now and add to this ever-growing database!

Need some help getting started? Here are some pages you can familiarize yourself with:

  • Introduction – An introduction to the project.
  • Wikidata tours – Interactive tutorials to show you how Wikidata works.
  • Community portal – The portal for community members.
  • User options – including the 'Babel' extension, to set your language preferences.
  • Contents – The main help page for editing and using the site.
  • Project chat – Discussions about the project.
  • Tools – A collection of user-developed tools to allow for easier completion of some tasks.

Please remember to sign your messages on talk pages by typing four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically insert your username and the date.

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask on Project chat. If you want to try out editing, you can use the sandbox to try. Once again, welcome, and I hope you quickly feel comfortable here, and become an active editor for Wikidata.

Best regards!

WEFramework toolEdit

Hi. At English Wikisource we have the WEF tool set up as a gadget that allows you to add detail about the editions in situ from the page at enWS. It allows you to search and select numerous data fields and apply the to the item. I typically use the "WEF: FRBR Edition" popup for our editions there.  — billinghurst sDrewth 01:25, 24 July 2021 (UTC)

@billinghurst: Thank you; I'll use this going forward. CalendulaAsteraceae (talk) 03:01, 24 July 2021 (UTC)
(-: Hope that it helps. Saves me lots of effort, and all effort saved is a bonus IMO.  — billinghurst sDrewth 06:32, 24 July 2021 (UTC)
@billinghurst: Is there a way to add badges (like a Validated badge) from the Wikisource side? —CalendulaAsteraceae (talk | contribs) 04:52, 10 August 2021 (UTC)
No :-/ Asked, not implemented. If inductiveload does his tool, it would be a next step.  — billinghurst sDrewth 06:52, 11 August 2021 (UTC)
Good to know; thank you. —CalendulaAsteraceae (talk | contribs) 07:12, 11 August 2021 (UTC)

Wikisource reproductions are typically editionsEdit

Hi. When coding items for WS works of fiction that we reproduce we would call them an instance of version, edition, or translation (Q3331189) per the guidance at Wikidata:Books. Of course, it is never totally that sinple, however, it is the default.  — billinghurst sDrewth 09:54, 5 October 2021 (UTC)

Thank you, that's good to know. —CalendulaAsteraceae (talk | contribs) 20:23, 5 October 2021 (UTC)

Edward EcclestonEdit

Hi. I created an author page on Wikisource this morning for the above. I subsequently got a message to say that you'd connected it to Wikidata entry 'Edward Gee of Eccleston' (Q5343081). I looked to do the Wikidata connection myself when I set up the page but I only found the entry you've linked it to. However, I don't believe the two are the same. The birth/death dates for 'Edward Gee of Eccleston' don't seem to fit with the publication history of the play listed on the WS author page and there is no mention of the play in the DNB entry for 'Edward Gee of Eccleston'. The nature of play also appears to be inconsistent with the publications of 'Edward Gee of Eccleston' listed in his DNB entry. Regards, Chrisguise (talk) 13:42, 18 November 2021 (UTC)

@Chrisguise: Sorry about that! I've unlinked the author page from Edward Gee of Eccleston (Q5343081). —CalendulaAsteraceae (talk | contribs) 21:35, 18 November 2021 (UTC)

The Street of the Four WindsEdit

This has not been proofread yet. The current text is a copy-paste and the scan pages have yet to be created. --EncycloPetey (talk) 17:11, 18 May 2022 (UTC)
